Original Rock Music · Bend, Oregon

About Something Dirty

Entering its second year performing live for audiences in Central Oregon, Something Dirty's music has proven to capture the enduring spirit of late 80's and early 90's alternative and indie rock. With influences including Dinosaur Jr., Screaming Trees, Pixies, Pearl Jam, Toadies, Sugar, and Mudhoney, a guitar-driven, melodic, somewhat poppy sound is the basis for the band's original rock.

Something Dirty is a collaboration of four musicians who each bring unique vision and musical experience to the band's sound. Songwriters Gregg Swanson and Jesse Fish share guitar and singing duties, while drummer Dale Anderson and bassist Chad Crowell provide a steady foundation for the rhythm and melodies.

Something Dirty has played to fans at many of Bend's best-known live music venues including Silver Moon, Worthy, On Tap, Spoken Moto, M&J Tavern, and River's Place. The band is currently booking gigs in and around Central Oregon.
